What a fascinating contrast, the Lancaster and the Comet. Love the Ansett 727 of course. Thanks Sal.

I'm on the case! Incidentally, that Tu-104 at Vnukovo is not the original CCCP-L5412' but another one painted up to represent it. Furthmore, this is the second one to be placed there and painted with that reg.
